Coming down Koedoesberg we eventually joined up with the road to the famed Ouberg, the undisputed queen of Northern Cape passes. She is an absolute beauty, and I will happily go back to ride her roughly for a 3rd,4th and umpteenth time :ricky: :ricky: :ricky:
By the way, the road is not bad at all at the moment and can be ridden or driven with basically anything.  Respect to our forfathers who went up and down there with ox wagons though...

Side note - the old, faded sign on the Tankwa side, in afrikaans nogal pointing the way is true vintage, really beautiful and can never be replaced with one of the same character - lets try and keep this one sticker free please...?

At the lookout point about 2/3 up we stopped for the obligatory photos and scavenged a dead bossie which we lit in the fancy fire pit to sacrifice a few lekker cheese grillers on my newly modified roostertjie. This would be the 1st and last time I would have the pleasure of using my roostertjie - always run a bungee or strap through anything you want to secure on the bike, even if you think it is pulled really tightly over the top. Lesson learnt, because my roostertjie will now be used by the person who picked it up somewhere in the Roggeveld on the way to Laingsburg the following day  :crybaby2:

At the top of Ouberg Pass we would leave the Tankwa Karoo behind us and enter the Great Karoo.
Ek is 'n boorling van Fraserburg. Ken die wreld goed.  Maar Koedoesberg sal jy moet mooier beduie waar hy l.  En dan ook neem ek aan dat jou neef dan heet Bennie Blom.  Sommer net so stukkie oor Banksgate.  Ek en vroutjie het hom paar jaar gelede gery met die 1200GS.  2 weke na ek hom gekoop het.   Dit was 'n nag merrie.  As jy weer in die omgewing kom moet jy my s dan gaan wys ek jou nog een van ons wreld se versteekte juwele.  ChrisL moet sommer die sidecar bring.

Baie dankie. Mooi RR. Het al heelwat van die paaie gery wat julle gery het. Daai huis net voor Gysmanshoekpas het nog perskepit vloere in. Lieflike deel van die wereld daai.
